House of the Seven Gables

Earlier this week I had reason to be touring the grounds of the House of the Seven Gables.  I couldn't help taking a few (!) photos, so you could come along on my walk vicariously in case you can't make it here right now. The peonies were in full bloom, and they are my favorite flower.  Here are my photos:

Peony blooms were spectacular


There is a beautiful sundial in the garden


The well.

The "boat" complete with ship wheel and bell, is well-used by children visiting the site.

Compass painted in the sidewalk along the fence next to the water.







I hope you take the opportunity to visit this lovely site when you visit Salem.  It is well-worth your time.
